GOP will strip Planned Parenthood of funding while repealing ACA
Despite lack of replacement legislation, GOP plans for repeal in coming weeks.
They're seeking to repeal the ACA (which has made birth control free to a large number of women) AND looking to defund Planned Parenthood – and they don't have a replacement plan.
Despite abortion services drawing the most attention, abortions make up only about three percent of Planned Parenthood’s work. Of the nearly 9.5 million services Planned Parenthood provided in 2014, 4.2 million (45 percent) of those services were related to testing and treating sexually transmitted infections. Thirty-one percent, or 2.9 million services, were for birth control. The rest were largely for pregnancy testing, cancer screening, and other health services such as urinary tract infections and adoption referrals.
